Heather Woods Broderick Announces New Album ‘Labyrinth’ Out 4/7 (Western Vinyl), Shares New Single/Video “Crashing Against The Sun”
Heather Woods Broderick today announced her fifth full-length album, Labyrinth, will be released on April 7th, 2023, via Western Vinyl. She has also shared the album’s glistening, cascading synth and drum-led second single, “Crashing Against The Sun,” alongside a video directed by Jeremy Johnstone. Of the song, which is perhaps the most stadium-ready she has ever sounded, Broderick says, “‘Crashing Against The Sun’ is about coming to terms with the realities of today, and moving through the present with a presence of mind and recognition of all the possibilities the future holds. It’s about what we cling to as reassurance or validation in our world, and how these things are often fleeting. The song illustrates a curiosity as to how those same sentiments can also have dual existence and present positivity. The subtleties of existence are full of variability. Our experience can often feel redundant, but uniqueness lies in the details. Essentially, time flies, enjoy the ride.”
